A reporter happened into an up
town precinct iccontly and tv tight
the sergeant in tlie act ot tenohing
n couple ol tramps to speak Kng
llsh, allhotigh thu men were born
and bred in Knglaud. They came
from Loudon, but from that part of
London known as Wliitoolinpel.
They wore crltablc cockneys, and
whilo they were niastois of their
"o's" thev had no control of their
"Now, then, boys," bnid tin; ser
geant, hold in your breath and sai
'up.' " The men did a they were
told and grew red in the face, but
the word came out clear and dis
tinct without the aspirate. "Now
breathe out hard and say 'ham,' "
said the sergeant. One of the men
did very well, but the other seemed
to have lost his breath and out came
the cockney " 'am." They tried it
again, however, and finally mic
cccdcd in getting out a llrst-ratc
"ham." Other wonK like "hope,"
"have," "ale" and others having
the long sound of "a" were then ex
perimented with, and, when fifteen
minutes later the two ti amps went
into the asscmbly-ioom to " 'avc a
bit o' bread an 'am," they no longer
pronounced ale, "aisle," hope,
"Those young men came fiom a
district near to that wheic 1 was
born," oaid the sergeant, by way of
explanation; "and they are unfor
tunate as much because of their in
ability to speak properly as for anj
other icason. I used to get my
'hV 'tother-ways-about,' and can
fully appreciate their dilliculties.
It took me seven years to correct
my English, but 1 did it at last, and
succeeded only by following out the
plan you hae just seen me tiy on
these two men. After 1 had dis
covered the art of breathing and
speaking 1 read aloud for practice.
The mistake English people make
is not as many suppose in pionounc
ing the 'h' as an aspiiale. They
can all conect their language if
they will pronounce their 'hV with
the. expulsion of the breath, and
hold the breath in when pronounc
ing words that begin with a vowel.
Eciytiuie they come to a woid be
ginning with 'h' if they will emit a
long breath and then pronounce the
word, they will gradually acquiic
the pronounciatiou without blowing,
until finally it becomes second na
ture." New York Mail and Ex
press. A Courteous Bulljinc My little
nephew, aged llnee, wiitcs a lady,
was fond of playing cais by running
along pulling and blowing in imita
tion of the engine. One day I

to give him the right of w ay, re

A PAUPER'S DYING BEQUEbT.
An amusing and yet pathetic in
cident in what the poet Giay called
" the short and simple annals of
the poor," is told by Mr. John J. H.
Micklejohn, one of the Inspectors
of the Poor, at Suerwick, Shetland
Islands, lie says that some time
ago an old woman, named Baibara
Smith, came under the notice of the
Board. She was extremely ill, and
it did not look likely that she would
long need care of any kind. She
did not reside on the main land, bit
on a small island a few miles distant
aud there being no parochial institu
tions in that place, Barbara neces
sarily occupied the position of a
pauper living out. The tiouble
from which she suffered dated back
many years. In better and more
prosperous days she had in some
way laid the foundation for Chionio
Indigestion and Dyspepsia, and out
of this had sprung other complaints
as age and bodily infirmities crept
apace upon her.
Barbara was not ignorant, albeit
she had fallen into povcity. In ear
lier life she somehow obtained the
advantage of a fair education, and
this, added to native shrewdness,
enabled her to use good judgment in
respect to her own situation and
state of health. Although she had
long suffered ftom asthma and a
bronchial affection, Barbara was
wiso enough to see that these ail
ments arose from the 'disordered
stomach and digestion, and that if
the main trouble could be cured the
others would soon leavo her. It is
piobablc that her disease began as
others do, with the usual symptoms i
headaches, bad breath, the using of
the sour liuids in throat, oppression
V?.' and fauitncH,s at tho pit of the stom
J aclf, loss of sleep, coated tongue,
,-tluli oyes, bad tabto in the mouth,
' &c, mid llunlly becamo chronic and
hopeless through her not being able
Vfiiid any remedy. Tho Inspector
stales that she had been under mod
ical treatment -for years, but to no
, effect. In this atiait sho one day
raadQ the following touching appeal
to the Inspector: "1 have been
Bwallowiug medicines for months.
They do mo no good. I am going
nn from worso to worse, I can cn-
duro it no longer, I feel that in n
week or two 1 shall be dead. There
is one last request I would make of
you : give mo a bottle of Mother
Sclgcl's Curative Synip; it is my
only hope. If it proves a failuro
and does mo no good I will die in
peace, and make no more expense
to the paiish."
11 seems she had got hold of one
of Mothei Scigcl's Almanacks and
read of the gieat cuies in ought by
the Syrup in cw-s like hers.
The Hoard pitied the poor lone
woman and granted her petition, be
lieving, however, the syrup would
prove as useless as the other medi
cines she had already taken. What
was their astonishment to find, in the
course of a few days, that she had
not only been able to get out of bed,
but to move about outside the house,
and had taken journeys to a consid
erable distance, and was actually en
joying better health than since she
was first taken ill. The asthma and
bionchitis, which weie no more than
symptoms of her true disease (indi
gestion and dyspepsia), rapidly
abated, and it now seems that Bar
bara will soon be as hale and hcaity
as the Inspector himself, and be one
of the hosts of living witnesses to
the power of Mother Scigcl's Syrup
to save the thousands who weie just
ready to perish.

A REMARKABLE CASE.
Under the tibovo heading the
Xoncattcr Ilcporlcr of July Otli,
1887, publishes the following In its
Our readers may recall the cir
cumstance of a young clerk, named
Arthur Kicholtl, falling insensible
on tho AVeatley Lane in tin's town
sonic lime ago, nnd being picked
up, as ho continued perfectly help
less, and taken in a cab by two
gentlemen to the olllce of F. W.
Fisher, Ksq ; the solicitor who cm
ploj'cd him. On restoring him to
consciousness it was ascertained
that he was nflicted with what
seemed to be an incurable disease.
When he was able to speak ho
said lie had been to his dinner nnd
and was on his way back to his
work, when suddenly his head was
in a whirl and he fell in the street
like a man who is knocked down.
On coming to his senses in the soli
citor's olllce ho thought what this
might mean, and feared lie was
going to have a lit of illness, which
we all know is a very dreadful
thing for a poor man witli a family
to care for.
With this in his mind he at once
sought tho best medical advice,
telling the doctors how he had been
attacked. They questioned him -and
found that his piescnt malady
was exhaustion of the nervous sys
tem resulting from general debility,
indigestion, and dyspepsia of a
chronic nature. This in turn had
been caused by confinement to his
desk and grief at hc loss of dear
friends by death. The coming on
of tins-strange disease, as described
by Mr. Hiehold, must bo of inter
est both to sick and well. He had
noticctl for several years previously,
in fact, that his eyes and face 'be
gan to have a j-ellow look; theic
was a sticky and unpleasant slime
on the gums and teeth in the
morning ; the tongue coated ; and
the bowels so bound and costive
that it induced that most painful
and tioublesome ailment the piles.
He says there was some pain in
the sides and back and a sense of
fulness on the right side, as though
tho liver were enlarging, which
proved to be the terrible fact.
The secretions fiom the kidneys
would be scanty and high-coloured,
with a kind of gritty or sandy
deposit after standing.
These things had troubled Mr.
Richold a long time, and after his
fall in the street he clearly perceived
tiiat the lit of giddiness was nothing
more than a sign of the stcadly
and deadly advance of the complaint,
which began in digestion and tlys
pepsia. His story of how he went
from one physician lo another in
seal cli of a cure that his wife and
little ones might not come lo want is
very pathetic and touching. Finally
he became too ill to keep his situa
tion and had to give it up. This
was a sad calamity. He was appall
ed to think how he should be able to
live. Hut God raised up friends
who helped to keep the wolf from
the door. lie then went to the sea
side at "Walton-on-the-Nazc, but
neither the change, nor fhe plry- '
sicians who treated him there, did
any good. All being without avail
he visited Loudon, with a sort of
vague hope that some advantage
might happen to him in the metro
polis. This was in October, 1885.
How wonderful, indeed, are tho
ways of Providence, which dashes
down our highest hopes and then
helps us when we least expect it.
While in London he stated his con
dition to a friend, who stiongly ad
vised him to try a medicine which lie
called Mother Seigrl'a Curative
Sytup, saying it was genuine and
honest, and often cured when every
thing else had failed. Ho bought
a bottle of a chemist in Fimlico, and
began using it nccoidiug to tho di
rections,. He did this without faith
or hope, and the public, may there
fore judge of his surpiise and plea
sure when after taking a few doses
he felt great relief. He could cat
better ; his food distressed him less ;
the symptoms we have named abated ;
the dark spots which had floated
before his eyes like smuts of soot,
gradual!' disappeared, and his
strength increased. Before this
time his knees would knock together
whenever he tried to walk. So en
couraged ..vas he now that he kept
on using Mother ijeiyeVs Curative
Syrup until it ended' in completely
curing him. '
In speaking of his wonderful re
covery Mr. Richold says it made
lii in think of poor Robinson Crusoe,
and his deliverance from captivity
on Ills island iu the sea; and added,
"Hut for Mothtfr Suigel's Curative
Syrup the grass would now bo
growing over my grave."
Our readers qan lest assured of.
of tho strict truth of all tho statc
ments'in this most icmarkable case,
as Mr. Richold (now residing at
Swiss Cottage, Wnlton-on-lhe-Nnzo)
belongs to one of tho oldest and
most respected families in tho beau
tiful village of hong Melford,
Suffolk, and his personal charactor
is attested by so high an authority
as tho Rev. C. J. Maifyn,. rector
of that paiisli, besides other excel
lent namc3. We have deemed tho
caso of sucli inporlanco to tho pub
lic us to justify us in giving this
short account of it in our columns,
